 Case Number: I-16-0112-O                                                                    Page 1 of 1



                We received an anonymous allegation that a PI1 had converted a student’s dissertation 2 into
         an NSF proposal. 3 Our analysis showed that the proposal was not copied from the dissertation. We
         reached out to the anonymous complainant on numerous occasions for further information, but the
         complainant did not respond. Without further information, this case cannot be pursued.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
